Outgoing Democrat: Why is Everyone So Hyped About Ocasio-Cortez?

In an interview with CNN, outgoing Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said that she wasn’t impressed with the sudden rise of incoming Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). McCaskill, who has been warning the Democratic Party in recent days that they risk losing more of the white working class if they drift further down the progressive path, told the network that she saw the rising socialist star as little more than a flash in the pan.

“I’m a little confused why she’s the thing,” McCaskill said. “But it’s a good example of what I’m talking about, a bright shiny new object, came out of nowhere and surprised people when she beat a very experienced congressman.”

Ocasio-Cortez was a former bartender when she decided to launch an insurgent Bernie Sanders-style campaign for New York’s 14th Congressional District this year. She garnered headlines and instant political fame when she dethroned veteran lawmaker Joe Crowley in the primaries, and has become a favorite plaything for the media in the meantime. On the conservative side, Ocasio-Cortez has been mercilessly mocked for her all-too-frequent demonstrations of ignorance which seem to indicate a decided lack of depth to her intellectual façade.

As for McCaskill, she said that while she felt no animosity towards Ocasio-Cortez, there was a huge difference between talking the talk and walking the walk.

“She’s now talked about a lot,” McCaskill said. “I’m not sure what she’s done yet to generate that kind of enthusiasm, but I wish her well. I hope she hangs the moon. The rhetoric is cheap. Getting results is a lot harder.”

McCaskill said that Ocasio-Cortez should remember that not everyone in the country thinks like her supporters in the Bronx.

“I hope she also realizes that the parts of the country that are rejecting the Democratic Party, like a whole lot of white working-class voters, need to hear about how their work is going to be respected, and the dignity of their jobs, and how we can really stick to issues that we can actually accomplish something on,” McCaskill said.

Can’t say we would ever cast a vote for Claire McCaskill in any reasonable scenario…except one where the only other choice was an avowed leftist like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. We continue to believe that, despite all the hype in certain internet circles, this Sander/AOC fad is destined for the dustbin of history…and sooner rather than later.

If we’re wrong, though, and those progressive-style Democrats are the future of both their party and our country, God help us all.

    • because she is most stupid than ALL DEMONAZI and tragic is that she can not understand how much illiterate politic she is. she need a REALY school,not by affirmativ acction

  1. I agree with McCaskill. AOC is beautiful so let us not forget that the legal system supports a not guilty verdict if the plaintiff is extraordinarily handsome or beautiful. Our whole society supports beauty even down to the classroom…look at teh ads in all papers and magazines and look at what we sell from body changes to makeup even for men, to make us better looking. . We are a misguided and superficial group at best.

    Then consider our educational system.Obama and AOC are in the same boat of ignorance. Neither has the faintest idea of what the Constitution is or why it was formed and the same thing goes for the Bill of Rights. Then let’s talk about our educational system…both Obamas and AOC would have failed any class I taught. They are emotional gut rendering panderers to socialism and communism. Now the people who vote for them haven’t a clue about socialism or communism, they just want a “better life’ and not working for it through education or actual work is even better.

    I think there is no mystery why AOC and Obummer were elected. Not a single mystery.

    • You allege to be an ‘educator’, yet somehow think a ‘Constitutional’ scholar and former head of the Harvard Law Review doesn’t have “…the faintest idea of what the Constitution is or why it was formed.” I suspect your blindness, bias and cultivation as a ‘right-wing’, brown-shirt would NOT make you a very good ‘educator’.

      I suppose you think Trump has a deep, nuanced and highly intellectual understanding of the Constitution and Bill of Rights…?

      • Maybe Obama could PASS a test regarding the Constitution or the Bill of Rights but he doesn’t care what it SAYS and means. Maybe Donald Trump couldn’t pass the test but he loves this country, he is following the rules, and he loves and greatly cares for our military and the protectors of ALL people. You should be grateful.
        President Donald Trump is trying to do what is best for ALL Americans.
        Obama hates this country and really doesn’t like the little man. Obama is impressed with movie stars and the life they live – all airheads whose only ability is to be able to memorize lines and act. What a sorry bunch of people.

    • OAC is “beautiful”? When I see what she spews all I see is ugly. Same with Obama. Two ugly people – their personalities out weigh the flesh.

  2. Democrats are excited about her because she is a bigger fraud than they are. She hoodwinked her voters and now they have an ignorant bar girl for representative in Congress. She has no clue what she is supposed to do and surely no inkling how to help anyone. Typical liberal jerk. Like Schumer..we will never vote for border wall. That is the statement of a crazed loon. He has no business in the Senate either. Nor Pelosi anymore. She just babbles incoherently. Democrats should just go sit in the woods like Hillary!

  3. Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is not really that attractive! Her teeth need straightening. When you look at her, all you see is teeth! Maybe now she can get her teeth straightened at taxpayers’ (us) expense! She probably ran for Congress because she was bored with her job as a bartender and tired of sitting in her parents’ basement surrounded by her Barbie collection and her participation trophies.

  4. DELIBERATE ASSAULT AGAINST ‘EXISTING LAWS’ (BORDER SEC. & ANY OTHER LAWS) & DELIBERATE ANARCHY AGAINST THE PRESIDENT & CONSTITUTION & WE THE PEOPLE > AKA: TREASON / SEDITION!!! PRES. TRUMP”S BIGGEST MISTAKE > NOT *FULLY DRAINING* THE SWAMP & NOT *LOCKING UP* THE “DEEP STATE”! ACLJ Law Firm (D.C.) Mr. Jay Sekulow Chief Counsel has been ready for all of it the past 1 yr. – They started Pepping Legal Cases during the Election Nov. 2016 & far more so since then! They have been crying out for POTUS to give them the Green Light & some Law Enforcement that is not part of the SWAMP / DEEP STATE!!!

    • OMG…. STOP SCREAMING! Lol…. Your blood pressure all pumped up over FOX propaganda (outright lies!)

      Now, how would you have defined “THE SWAMP” prior to Trump occupying the White House? Would it be defined as having Wall Street Bankers, Lobbyists and Industry Lawyers, etc.? All Trump has done is ADD to the cesspool that was already there. AND…. as far as I recall, you still can’t lock people up for being critical of your mis-administration… unless you’re aspiring to become Russia (or a Russian puppet)…. or Hitler’s Germany. Your ‘Divine Justice’ WILL come to light someday. I’m sure of it.

      • Your first line says it all! If you do not look or listen to both sides of the scenario or situation, then you do not get the whole picture, period! Both sides lie, twist, and deceive, some news outlets more than others…… Obama’s administration attacked and went after the press more than this one, but they did it behind the scenes! And the last admin also did a lot of damage to small business’ by quietly changing laws and regulations which strangled many and put many out of business! Oh Obama knew the laws and the Constitution alright and how to go around them! Thus we end up with Trump. Trump is more like a wrecking ball which many of us hope will disrupt the DC elite status quo to the point that they retire or leave and fresh blood and faces can take their turn. Though the corruption is so deeply entrenched it may be a loosing battle to bring government back to the control of the people. If you don’t believe the above, just ask yourself how so many in Congress and in prior admins got so wealthy on a salary less than many make in the civilian world? You have the corrupt 1%, regardless of which side of the aisle they are on, dictating policy, regulation, etc. while quietly lining their pockets which allows them to become/stay part of the 1%! Get a clue Bdog; if you are only paying attention to one side, you will be blind sided at some point; We all will as there are always two sides to every coin and too much power corrupts absolutely!

  5. The “Drift to the Left”, wish to scrap our beautiful constitution
    and kill the guardian Electoral College by leading Democrats is
    not a wisp of wind but a very dangerous “communeist” trend.

  6. Not hyped up about any of you self-adoring morons. As for AOC? You have got to be kidding. What are her constituents smoking?

  7. This little cutie upstart is a very confused and childlike fool, or she’s a dedicated “communist” insurgent. Her political postulations sound very Marxist, and we all should know where that leads. How she can recite the “Oath-of-Office” with sincerity, I’ll never figure out. (Could be treasonous right there, from the start).

  8. Always remember what our forefathers gave their lives for — so we their decendents (two of mine signed the Declaration of Independence) would be free from tyrany, fear and oppression from tryants— tyrants like we have never seen before — politicians who have betrayed the very people who elected them — the America people —given all this i have but one question – what kind of life will our children and grandchildren have — simply put – remove God destroy your country — study history and understand
